MILANO, FIERA CAMPIONARIA
Not to be confused with Milano - Milano, Indoor Kart Center - Milano, Parco Sempione - Milano, Pista Rossa
Description Fiera Campionaria hosted 1947 Italian Gran Prix (the first after Second World War), because Monza was still damaged because of the war. I don’t know if this circuit was used in 1948 too (probably not), but if so, surely not for any important event. In June 2008 an endurace kartrace is scheduled inside the fair and the old circuit

Viale Berengario, at start/stop line. I think that pits were in Piazzale Arduino (Arduino square), on the leftFirst curve. Circuit goes on in the tunnell under the building between two white towers.First curve seen in opposite direction, just in front of the tunnellTwo white towers and via Bartolomeo Colleoni tunnell. Surely this section is changed since 1947 and I think that at that time fairground finished at right tower position and that there wasn’t any tunnell
